how to write an opinion paragraph
Worksheets for 1st and 2nd graders are provided to help students understand the difference between facts
The students introduce the paragraph by stating their opinion about Thanksgiving Day. They follow with detailed reasons why they feel that way, and end with a closing sentence.
After planning, writing a 1st draft, revising, and writing a final draft
, the students read the paragraphs to each other. After the sharing session, a bar graph
can be completed, to visually represent how the class feels about the holiday.
